Still Running a Little Low on Words So Here, Have Some Pics ...

Yes, the first photos are in from the epic trip to China!
Here is Johnny resting comfortably
in the Lufthansa lounge before boarding his flight,
happy that he has successfully smuggled
a loaf of LV-stamped bread through security
hidden in his Chanel bag
(sort of like turducken, only with designer labels ... ).
May we also just say: Arms.

And here is Johnny struggling helplessly
to stop his seat back from ending up flat on the floor
after Tara secretly pushed
the "lay down bed" button on his chair remote--
which of course is just the tiniest bit of payback
for all the flights to Russia and Japan in which he spent
the entire time elbowing Tara every five minutes
and saying, "I'm bored," while she was trying to sleep ...
(Note: Is he really wearing sweatpants of some kind?

If you would like to actually read something, please go here now to enjoy the second installment of "Johnny Comes to Our Office!" with more fabulous pics. Today's portion of this wonderful interview is titled, "You Weren't Competing Against Anyone," and includes some very thoughtful quotes as well as this don't-miss exchange:

Shigesato Itoi: [At the Olympics], you stood out amongst others, you looked very different.

Johnny: Was it just the rhinestones?

Short but sweet, lol! Love the pics! And I loved Johnny's response 'Was it just the rhinestones?' also!

Poke...I'm bored...Poke...I'm bored Tara...Poke...I'm bored again...Poke...

Poor woman! But I'll be happy to make the sacrifice and sit next to him on his next long flight and be poked!

Great pics. LOL. Like them.

PumaJ said...

I really do appreciate Johnny's humor:-) 'Course its never been directed at me, LOL.Though, I have a feeling that it would be very much of the "little" brother type of humor;-)

Thanks for putting up the pics, Binks:-)

Mimi said...

LOVE LOVE Snicker Snicker...a little goes a long way!!!

Debora Walsh said...

Thanks, Binky, for EVERYTHING your blog is to Johnny and his fans....
MMmmm...If I had that Chanel bag, I would be hugging it too!...and yes everyone should be reading Mr. Shigesato's interview with JGW. When you read his impressions of seeing Johnny perform "Fallen Angel", you will recognize your own feelings in his words. I'm so glad they decided to make it accessible to all of us.

LOL so hard!!

I think a little bit of Chanel goes a long way with Johnny. And that 2nd pic is high-larious. O the hijinx! I wonder what book JWe is reading on the plane -- or is that a September issue? ;)

So much charm and self-deprecating humor. We want to be in on your journeys.

Tara is, I bet, not much for being a Pokerface when poked, lol. Long, hard flight, and its difficult to sleep with that brilliant glitter fountain beside you.

I'm too lazy to log in.

To that first picture might I just add: Hands! Look at those lovely, graceful fingers.

I don't like that bag at all; too matronly! However, I have to give 100% support to anything that puts that peaceful, blissful look on his face, so "Go Chanel!"

I heard him in a radio interview say he didn't believe in sweatpants. Circumstances change I suppose. Thanks so much for the pix Binky!!!!!

I spent *all day looking at the second photo and *just figured out that it was taken from above.


Oh well at least I got to stare at Johnny all day :P (it's 9 PM here)

And I have alternate caption for 2nd photo:

Please turn off all blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, any kind of berry ....

(actual flight attendant banter on the way back from Belize)

OOoo and Pictures are made of WIN ♥
